both of mine would randomly get condensation too...
the glue line on top yellowed early too...Brian taped off a line around the edge and did Raven and then recleared the whole thing.
Want the link to the ebay amber DRL I used? No codes kicked on dash or anything and looked a ton better than halogen.

at one point I had the LED fogs too but no usable output there.

I mean, or white...but I think the amber on black looks sinister as hell.

Nice pics, it could be my eyes but it actually looks longer (especially in this pic) since the drop..

My lights also get condensation in them on occasion. I complained to the dealer a few times in the past an even showed them pics, but since there was no condensation when I was there they wouldn't replace them..

Talking



Last Wed, talked to a guy at the Esso station on Stanley in Niagara Falls, he had a 2014 'Vedan'.

All blacked out, same ride height. Asked if he lowered it, "nope, it came that way when I bought it."

Car looked awesome with the drop.

So, just another confirmation that this is the accepted ride height for maximum onlooker impressions.

I've only had one person acknowledge the V & it was at the gas station as well. Buddy was like 5 pumps down & I saw him staring...

​​​​​​"That thing must be terrible on gas, 500hp right?"

"It's not pretty but smiles per gallon make up for it & 556hp but who's counting"

".... ... what a beast"

I would have just said 'Yes' and done a burnout on the way out, but you're Canada so you're polite.

There were cars that came with only 56hp, so, yeah, I would be counting. lol

lol @ J. I just need a car that can do quality burnouts so I can practice, but that would be my exit 'strategy'.

Guess it doesn't count that I have been watching a ton of burnout vids lately......? Love to see a good strip laid down or some sideways slides leaving a car meet!

Mini road trip this weekend to the cottage, mucks up pretty good..

​​​​​​The passion for this car grows daily, so much planned & can't wait for stage 1..





Even caught the pups checking it out..



Randomly found this meme last night & sums up my life right now, fitting that some hero in a STi on the way home didn't take well to being passed. Meme sums it all up..

I'd be surprised if someone actually got it. Removed the flat black vinyl between/around both windows. Been bugging me since I bought the car & it flows SOOO much nicer being gloss black.




Haven't gotten around to the driver side yet since it's been getting cold lately & it's not the most enjoyable experience..

Here's the driver side for reference..

fuckin interesting...
that's the same with the windshield surround on the S2000...
but it's such a gamble to pull it because not all of them are fully painted around it body color.
Looks good, man!

Well damn that is interesting for sure. One of the matte sections on one of my doors is stained lightly with something. You can't see it unless you are up close but bugs the hell out of me. Gives me some ideas.

No, I know where to find a midget and a drunk clown. I’m sure I can get a pet donkey thrown in for free, also.

Seems high..

I love it that most folks have no clue about these cars, let alone what some simple mods can do. The faces of some heros on the highway have been well worth the price of admission alone..
